Description

The Town’s Tree Preservation Bylaw No. 2138 regulates the cutting, pruning, and removal of trees and sets requirements for replacing protected trees.

To remove, extensively prune, or top an existing tree located on private property, you may require a Tree Removal Permit.

The Town has created an informal Significant Tree List and an opportunity for the public to nominate potential significant trees in the community.

The Town adopted an Urban Forest Strategy in 2019 which provides a clear vision and objectives for the future management of Sidney’s urban forest.
